3D-Kits 1:72 Spitfire Mk II LR Conversion Kit 72-C002.

Quote:
Injected plastic parts, high quality decals and full colour instructions to convert a Spitfire Mk I or II kit to a long range Mk II.

To increase the Spitfire's range about 100 Mk IIs were adapted in 1941 to carry a non detachable fuel tank under the port wing.  These served with 66, 152 and 188 Squadrons.  The tank gave a useful increase in range and allowed Spitfires to escort bombers on daylight raids to the continent, but speed and manoeuvrability suffered.

Featuring long-run injection moulded parts with fine recessed panel lines, our conversion set is designed for the new Airfix Spitfire (A02010), but with minor adaption can be used on other Spitfire kits as well. The set includes high quality decals printed by Fantasy Printshop for two aircraft (66 & 152 Squadrons).  Roundels are not included.

Just bought their Hurricane IID conversion, it looks excellent and I am looking forward to taking it in hand, using the Revell Hurricane IIc
